Was here a worklight version of Trafimax too? In a Finnish auction sold these: https://kiertonet.fi/muut/muuta-tavaraa/tyomaavalaisimia-23336 Looks like a flat Trafimax with opal bowl. I don't know lamp type or power. The sockets on stands seems Finnish company Strömfors Oy made from 1980's.

Oh my!! That is crazy! Looks like opal bowls, which I have never seen or even heard about. If not for the bowls, I would believe they were homemade. I can see they are the smaller versions because of the way the bowls are shaped. It is hard to see any other details because of the angle and quality of the picture in that auction.

Great find Make!

Seems, that they can turn up- and downwards. Maybe this model was only for Finland markets. I never see the normal Trafimax in Finland, even their sticker says "Suurjännite" in a Finnish language.

Thanks for comment.

So today, I managed to save the last of these 2! The SON one (which is the important one anyway since it has the ignitor stand inside)

I placed myself under the lamp about 10 minutes before they (maintenance) showed up (I had no idea they would, it was a guess), and I got it!

I already have the smaller version since a few years back, but this larger version is the one I have always had in the back of my head since childhood. I'm not only happy to have it now, but it is working and in good condition, it is in safe hands for the future. The new lanterns there are LED now (the one farthest away in the photo was already replaced with a LED lantern a few years back and I missed that).

Our whole community is changing to LED now, every single street lamp becomes the same Philips LED model (I don't know the type). Me and my friend happened to be at two different locations and saved the lanterns there. I will have to clean up the 80's lanterns, brush off the moss that grows on the glass fibre body, give them a bath without destroying original labels. It is quite a task that takes time. I will share pictures afterwards.
